McGiffin ready to make his mark with Stars

Cameron McGiffin has agreed a second season with Dundee Stars.

The 20-year-old made over 50 appearances in his debut year in the Elite League and feels he’s ready to make his mark in the top tier next term.

“I love playing in this league, but I didn’t realise how much of a challenge it would be and how much more quicker and bigger the guys were,” McGiffin told Stars TV.

“Once I got settled in, I got into it and I prefer playing in this league. I played in a few positions, but that’s one of the things of the job.

“But I was happy to contribute in different ways I could and getting to the play-offs was a great boost. Being part of the first Dundee Stars team to do it was quite special.

“We’ve set a standard and for me, personally, I want to build on last season. From last year, I knew this was a great place to play and a great organisation to be part of.

“I felt I pushed myself, but this year, I really want to make an impact on the team.”

Stars’ boss Marc LeFebvre added: “It was definitely a learning curve for Cameron, coming from the EPL and being a younger player.

“In an import driven league, he would have liked more ice time, but I saw a progression. He’s very mature for his age and I can see big things for him.

“Something we’ll look at is playing him in defence and as a forward, but he’s just glad of the opportunity to come back and improve on last season.”
